CRIMINAL APPEALS

An appeal of a lower court decision is a legal process by which a higher court is asked to review the trial court's record and rule on the legal issues raised by the appellant (a party to a case--in a criminal case, it is usually the defendant).

The Circuit Criminal Department handles all appeals for convictions and court rulings from the Circuit Criminal and County Criminal Courts for Palm Beach County’s 15th Judicial Circuit.

All correspondence regarding a County or Circuit Criminal appeal can be sent to::
